CNN reports today that Google has purchased the garage where the company got started. Google bought the property from one of its employees, Susan Wojcicki, the vice president of product management who originally rented the garage to cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin for five months to help her pay her California-sized mortgage.
The CNN report also includes this gem:
The busloads of people that show up to take pictures of the house and garage have become such an annoyance that Google asked The Associated Press not to publish the property's address, although it can easily be found on the Internet using the company's search engine.
I wonder how long it will take before someone uses Google's Sketchup to put a 3D model of the garage on Google Maps.
